I have a wonderful spinach onion frittata recipe that calls for frying half an onion in olive oil, adding garlic, spinach and seasonings, and then adding that mixture to an egg-yogurt-Parmesan mixture. It’s a delicious frittata, but it requires a fair amount of work. Last night, pressed for time, I decided to simply chop the spinach and mix it plus some onion powder with the rest of the ingredients. I also used feta in lieu of the Parmesan, because that’s what I had in the fridge.
The result was so good! Some of the spinach got baked and wilted inside the frittata, while some (I used a lot) remained on top and got a little crispy and browned. It was delicious, satisfying, and very easy to make, so this is my new weeknight spinach frittata recipe. Hope you like it too.
Note: This frittata contains a lot of spinach relative to the amount of eggs. I like it this way, but if you prefer a lower ratio of veggies to eggs, use half the amount of spinach listed.
Makes 8 slices
Total time: 55 minutes
Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 30 minutes
Cool: 15 minutes
8 large eggs
1/2 cup low fat Voskos Greek yogurt
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 cup reduced-fat crumbled feta cheese
1 (5oz) bag baby spinach, chopped
Olive oil nonstick spray
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place a 9-inch baking dish in the oven.
2. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, yogurt, salt, pepper and onion powder. Stir in the cheese and the spinach.
3. Carefully, using oven mitts, remove baking dish from hot oven. Spray with nonstick spray. Transfer egg mixture to baking dish. Lightly spray the top with olive oil spray. Bake 30 minutes, until golden brown and puffy and a knife inserted in center comes out clean. Allow to cool 5 minutes in pan, then invert onto a platter and from the platter to a cooling rack. Cool 10 more minutes before serving – frittatas actually taste better at room temperature than when hot.
